PHA/ATS/Pfizer Research Fellowship in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Through this co-funded partnership, PHA supports researchers covering very different aspects of pulmonary hypertension ranging from the role that genetics plays in the occurrence of pulmonary hypertension to how hypoxia affects newborns with pulmonary hypertension and much more.

As of 2011, PHA has supported 12 researchers through this partnership and we hope to continue to further our understanding of PH by continuing to support such novel efforts in the field. Learn more

Grants awarded from 2006 through 2009 were co-funded by PHA and the American Thoracic Society (ATS).
